Search committee guide

Search committees play a vital role in recruiting, evaluating, and recommending the most qualified candidates for employment by the University. Search committee members are often the first University employees that a candidate will meet. Each member has an opportunity to represent the University as a diverse and welcoming community while carrying out the search in accordance with University policies and procedures.

Note: Search committees or interview panels can be used for University and Academic Professionals. Search committees are required for Executive and Senior Administrator positions.

At any point in the process, Human Resources is available for consultation, to answer questions and discuss specific situations, and offer recommendations.
